Think of it this way: if there is no higher purpose to the suffering these people are subjected to, then don't you think they deserve an answer as to why they must suffer anyway? If you are ambivalent to their plight because of your perceptions of an imagined deity, aren't you morally obligated to be correct about those perceptions? You and a few others might not think that the question of religion is a very important one, but from a moral philosophy standpoint, it's hard to imagine there being very many questions that are more important.
